There was a very popular thread not to long ago about sneak eating. I read it with interest, because I am a sneak eater.
I'll eat things in my car on the way home from the grocery store so my husband doesn't know. I'll pull money out of the ATM and then use it to buy dinner when he's out so he doesn't see the restaurant show up on the bank account.
I have issues.
Why do I do this? My husband has NOT ONCE judged what I choose to eat. He's never made a comment on my food choices or anything. So why hide from him?
It's because deep down I KNOW that I don't need to be eating the things I'm eating and I'm ashamed of my low willpower. Other folks can eat sweets in moderation. Other folks can order one entree when they get takeaway. Why can't I?
Ugh... how do I stop doing this? I track the food I "sneak" for myself. But I'm still sneaking it from other people.
Should I tell him about it? Should I have him look at my tracker every day? Would that make me more or less likely to sneak eat? I don't know.
